Learning objectives

The course aims at introducing the participants to R and to some of its most powerful innovations, which have recently reshaped the way the R code is designed. The approach of the course is mainly applicative, and particular attention is devoted to some topics which are becoming more and more relevant in research, and typically entails highly time-consuming activities, such as data manipulation and code documentation. A unified conceptual framework is provided on model fitting, in order to make participants able to cope with different (and new) regression models autonomously and efficiently.This module
introduces the participants to R language and to its basic functions for statistical analysis of data and stochastic simulations.


1. Introduction to R: R and RStudio; working directory and workspace; special values; types and R objects: scalars, vectors, matrices, data.frame, lists; indexes; matrix operations; definition of new functions; the function str and the help of R.
2. Basic statistics with R: factor variables and the cut function; basic statistical functions; frequency tables and basic statistical tests; probability distributions; (pseudo)-random number generators and seeds; introduction to Monte Carlo simulations.
